Mastering/Mixdown tips and tricks I see various threads with people asking mastering/mixdown techniques and tips and thought it would be a good idea to have somewhere where us noobs could come and get some info easily. The majority of feedback on new production focuses on the "mixdown" and this can be very hard to achieve effectively. I see alot of phrases like "bouncing down" "fill the spectrum" "thicker" "Cleaner" etc etc. But for us who have no musical background, and are just starting out this can be quite daunting and confusing. So what I propose is that we dedicate this thread to any mastering/mixdown tips or tricks you may know. And take time to explain in detail what the terminologies you use, actually mean. I myself am new to production, and alot of things I have suggested here are things that I commonly get confused with, so with a community full of various degrees of talent and skill, and a neverending flow of new members, what better way to help the new blood and help the community grow, than to share these secrets?
